This is the inaugural Bourbonr Pro barrel tasting trip. We will be selecting a barrel of High Wire Distilling Jimmy Red Bourbon. If you're unfamiliar, here's a little more about this Garden & Gun Made In The South winner. Here's the schedule for the weekend.
This is a fully immersive and educational whiskey trip. We get to experience the full cycle from grain to the bottle of Jimmy Red bourbon with the distiller. We will also explore some of the best food and drinks Charleston has to offer. There are only 10 spots available!
